Hassle-free Fun — White 2001 Toyota Corolla S with black interior and 5- speed manual transmission. Bought new, and it now has about 99K miles. Surprisingly fun to drive with good ride quality. Steering becomes loose at the limits of adhesion, but feels natural and progressive up to 8/10ths, brakes feel great, shifter isn't quite Honda snick-snick but still very easy to operate. Seats are comfortable. Ergonomics are great, with one notable exception--the three cupholders are mediocre. The one cupholder in the rear is mounted on the center console, and is useless--so shallow, drinks will fly out over moderate cornering or bumps, and in the front, larger drinks (e.g. medium sized fountain drinks) will block access to the console and get in the way of the shifter. Audio system is so-so. Fit is great for the class and year, finish is about better than midpack, reliability is stellar--I have not had a single issue that needed a trip to the dealership, only performed routine maintenance and accident repairs. And being an economy car, any maintenance and repairs are cheap. I average about 32 mpg in the city and 38-40 on the highway. Road and wind noise are moderate. Engine isn't quite BMW I6 creamy, but it's relatively smooth. Overall, highly recommended. Fun to drive, cheap and hassle-free to operate. What more could one ask for?

As Reliable As A Stallion — The thing i love most about this car is that reliable. Even now 7 years later, still works with out a glitch and we have yet to do any major repairs. The biggest problem that i've had with the car is when a squirrel built a nest in the radiator grill. Its a 1.4 Ltr Petrol engine. Does 0-60 mph in bout 6-7 seconds. Nothin fancy but the reliability and comfort is spot on for any car in its class. And it isnt expensive either. Once i start college i hope to trick it out with sum after market parts. Brakes extremely well. Wont take coners at 100 mph but it handles quite well. Its a decent looking car and looks even better with a body kit.

My Whitebeauty! — Well, there is nothing that upsets me about the car apart from the fact that it only gets upto 110 MPH :( .... way too low for my liking :p Having said that, must say that the singapore model version of the same maker really flies n trust me I mean it when i say dis Apart from the speed, the car is near perfect in build quality, driving wise, its well balanced at high speeds n doesn't oversteer in the corners...real fun to drive!

The Best Corolla Ever :] — i absolutely love my car, it has been through everything with me given it was my first car which i still drive! It is great on gas too, I get around 30-42 mpg depending on city or freeway miles. I have it lowered with intake and exhaust as well as a killer sound system! It had a minor tranny leak right out of the factory but that was fixed with no issues since with regular maintenance!

Pros

Comfort, looks, fuel economy, reliability (as long as its well-maintained), maintenance cost

Cons

Needs more power, requires great attention to detail on maintenance, 3spd auto is a no-go (5spd manual or 4spd auto w/OD would be better), floaty handling on stock form, acts like a mini-Camry

Nice Commuter, But Don't Treat It Bad.... — Like any Corolla, it's a great economy car with the reliability to back up its name and the economy and comfort expected from a star of its class. Performance suffers when mated to the 3spd automatic-if you want one get a 5spd manual or else IMO. Adding lowering springs is a welcome improvement to handling. Overall, it's a great car for commuting, has nice looks, it's reliable, but could have been more than just that....
